Today, nearly 12 million of our fellow Americans are unemployed. Our hardest hit communities are struggling to hold on. The trend is not reversing. Government has not taken strong enough action. So what can we do?
Our government is not currently headed down the correct path to a sustainable recovery. They are trying to re-inflate another bubble instead of allowing the free market to create jobs that can help reconcile our trade imbalance.
The rightwing in today's economic story is like the child who killed both his parents and then pleaded for mercy because he was an orphan. The rightwing is to politics what the Menendez brothers were to family life.
